chief ghoul himself mitch mcconnell: >> bill: no, no, loser, you don't get to talk about failures when you were a gigantic failure. you lost seats in your party. shh. let me bring in the rest of the crew here. anna, you know as i just said that i've never seen any of the conservatives say we're outnumbered, lost the country. this is something new isn't it? >> it is new. i think that it's great that they've realized that this conservative idealogy isn't winning anymore. we talked about republicans abscessed with redefining rape. these kind of topics are not popular with the american public. i don't know why they continually wanted to talk about it. we passed so many different ballot initiatives that are so liberal. for instance, two states right now have legalized marijuana for recreational use. three more legalized gay marriage. that's a big deal. >> bill: we're on the march. i never thought we'd see that in the war on drugs. they're going to lose on that. and they lost on gay marriage. they're losing on everything, michael. what they do, what do rush limbaugh and bill o'reilly do, say
of the deal on the debt ceiling last year. >> it came out of mitch mcconnell's office. harry reid went along with it. mcconnell voted for it. john mccain who is a big critic of the defense part of the sequester, it was he voted for it. paul ryan voted for it. so you know, i'm not saying democrats are blameless here or don't deserve some of the responsibility but the idea that republicans are washing their hands and saying this is a white house ploy is completely wrong. >> bill: i was at the white house friday when president obama came into the east room and made a very short speech. very clear about what his plan is and what he wanted. here's the president with one challenge to members of congress. >> obama: i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> bill: what does he mean by that? >> balanced. he's saying first of all it's not just spending cuts. it has to be revenues as well. second, he's rejecting the j
-- the senate -- mitch mcconnell doesn't need to be in the room probably. but you want nancy pelosi in the room and put together a package that everyone will jump on. you'll see the house vote to lower taxes on the upper class folks and middle class folks, but when it goes to the senate you know it won't matter. >> that's right. now the problem is all we got last year was symbolic votes. >> right. >> this is again where you and i think the president gains by waiting. the pressure is not on him right now. the republicans will crack and the president needs to understand he has got more leverage, he can just sit there and go -- >> jennifer: but any problem for the president and frankly with boehner who is willing to wait as well, is the business community. they will be freaking out -- >> yeah look at the market today down 300 points -- >> jennifer: what is that about? >> i don't know. but i think ceo's came out and said revenue has to be part of this -- >> jennifer: this is why the president needs to use his bully pulpit to explain to the american people. >> exact
don't you remind me, mitch mcconnell. >> our top political priority should be to deny president obama a second term. >> cenk: welcome to the middle of the ring. did that happen for you, mitch? did it happen for you? republicans, oh no, there is obama! there is obama! not denied. you're denied. then finally my friends at fox news. >> it's going to be very close which is 51-48, a two point to two and a half point race, and i think romney gets 279 to 286. >> i'm sticking with you. i think it's a two-point race, too. >> cenk: well, guess what, you were all wrong. oh no! fox got it all wrong. this was their nightmare. obama landing right
is very nervous about whether he's going to maintain his speakership. mitch mcconnell is very nervous about how the senate is going to react to the new situation on capitol hill. it's going to take some time for this to play out. it's just going--it's not going to happen quickly. and if people think--people watching the news, eliot might be thinking that republicans suddenly are going to release that they have to change their stripes, and they have to be different--no, no, no. they're not going to realize that suddenly at all. >> eliot: this was not an epiphany moment for the republican party. you said something interesting. that john boehner may be worried about his speakership. who would challenge him and how likely would it be that they could succeed. >> it would be eric cantor or mccartymccarthy from california. they're more in line with the tea party caucus. as of right now i don't think anythings that changed as a result of this election to suggest that that faction in the house has lost any power. now we'll see when they all get back to town, and they all start talking to each
the president re-elected but senate minority leader mitch mcconnell surprised no one by disputing the idea that any mandate exists on this issue saying "if the president truly realizes that he was elected to represent all of its citizens, not just the ones who voted to give him a second term last tuesday, then he will seek the common ground he avoided so strenuously in his first term." paul ryan went even further on a local wisconsin television station last night. he said that the american people had not rejected his budget ideas and that, in fact, it was just a certain group of voters that cost him the election. >> i don't think we lost it on the budget issues. i think people, especially on medicare, we clearly didn't lose it on those issues. i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas which definitely gave president obama the big margin. >> jennifer: darn, they must not have suppressed enough votes. fine republicans you keep believing it was urban turnout and not your bad ideas
first noted that no one had asked that question of the male leaders like mitch mcconnell then she calmly graciously explained not just to the reporter but to all those who may not understand that often women don't accrue the necessary seniority for traditional advancement because they're penalized when they decide to spend time raising their families. nancy pelosi was elected to congress at age 47, after she had raised her family. many of her male counterparts were elected in their 30s presumably while their wives were raising their families. of course they have more seniority at each calendar year in their lives. now she explains she did not regret her choices but it's one reason why women don't get as many plum assignments because they don't have the seniority. so in staying on nancy pelosi is really looking out for those young women who are coming up. she's help to go redefine seniority and status on her terms. i am grateful and relieved to know it. third, really importantly there is no woman who is more vilified by the right than nancy pelosi. republicans use nancy pelosi as the whip
, mitch mcconnell, they don't give a damn about. don't give a rat's ass about. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >>for every discouraged voter, there are ten angry ones taking action. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. the powerful may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. >> bill: it is thursday, november 8, two days after president obama's decisive victory. our decisive victory. four more years for the obama agenda. great to see you today. take your calls at 1-866-55-press. and peter just before we get to -- back to the national picture, just reading during the break from the latest edition of california political week or cal-peak, this speaks to what we were talking about. how the republican party has lost its edge particularly among latinos, women young voters. in california, my state california republican party used to have 63.2% of voter registration. registered voters in california. republicans. today,
, mitch mcconnell held people back saying just give us three more months, four more months, get us through the election. this is working. well, it didn't work and there was a lot of frustration because on the farm bill, people wanted to work together. we saw it on transportation where there was bipartisan support in the senate to get that done. we saw it on a tax bill that we passed in july, with senator baucus senator orrin hatch working together. i'm confident in the senate that there are people that want to work across the aisle and understand what's at stake. the real question will be what happens in the house and i hope that they're getting the message that the people want us to work together and get things done! >> jennifer: right. joe biden was saying that on -- to the press yesterday and we all know that the 60% number, 60% of people are now saying they think that taxes have to be a component of it. but because your hand is stronger, from a tactical perspective, do you think it is better to have the democrats
-brainer that even a john boehner or mitch mcconnell have to see they cannot survive politically and oppose that. >> eliot: one would hope so. this is one where you want the president to watch the days and watch and say i'm not moving. this is your fault. >> bill: right. then here's the latest wrinkle. i'm sure you saw yesterday some democrats now say that they're buying the mitt romney plan, if you will, of let's not raise tax rates. let's just close loopholes. right. can you get there -- two-fold question eliot. i hate to put you on the spot. one is what's wrong with raising tax rates and two can you get there just by closing loopholes? >> eliot: nothing and no. nothing wrong with raising the rates on the top folks including me including the president including -- >> bill: and me. >> eliot: this is what this campaign was about. the president spoke to it eloquently. bill clinton. every economic study. i wrote my editorial on my show the other night the congressional research service just came out with a study saying ther
. >> i guess -- oh, you've always asked that question except to mitch mcconnell. >> he missed the question. joan what happened there was luke russert got to ask a question during speaker -- former speaker pelosi's press conference yesterday with all of the democratic-elected officials on stage. and he asked about her age and about the fact that she's hanging on to the leadership position and isn't that depriving someone younger of getting it. and former speaker pelosi astutely pointed out that he would never ask that question of mitch mcconnell and then she said this. >> let's, for a moment, honor it as a legitimate question. although it is quite offensive but you don't realize that, i guess. the fact is -- the fact is that everything that i have done in my almost -- i guess decade now of leadership is to elect younger and newer people to the congress. >> john: that's a smackdown luke russert. i mean that's just -- come on. you don't! when have you ever heard someone bring up age -- even john mccain. no one e
that mitch mcconnell is acting defiant and boner is like -- okay. >> he is like a whipped puppy. >> stephanie: we have not endorsed the failures and excesses of the president's first term. >> says the guy who is the minority leader in the senate. >> stephanie: yeah. republican insiders focused on the approaching problem. the republican -- >> where are the white people at? >> stephanie: exactly. the party must find a way to temper talk about immigration without infuriating conservatives -- you can't just say if you fix the tone you fix the problem, you have to figure out what kind of policy issues we have. it's not just their tone it's the way they talk about people their policies -- i really think the president stopping the deportation, the dream act all of that stuff, it's because he thinks it is the right thing to do. many republicans say first they must find ways to appeal to women. >> by stop being such a-holes would be a start. >> for one. >> stephanie: and jim, i have a very, very special edition -- [♪ "jeopardy" theme music ♪] >> stephanie: wh
